Willard Grant Conspiracy
Sun 27 Feb 1200
Sitting somewhere between country and alternative, the collective known as Willard Grant Conspiracy have been hailed as the new heroes of their genre. Based near Palmdale, California, the bands only permanent member, the heavily bearded vocalist Robert Fisher, has a style that has been compared to both John Cale and Johnny Cash. As a band, its easy to draw comparisons with the likes Nick Cave and Tindersticks.
With a collective of some 30+ musicians, Willard Grant Conspiracy are a force to be reckoned with both physically and musically.

Understatedly poetic and expertly crafted, this is a fine record
